The soft golden sands and rolling surf is the epitome of a classic Kiwi summer scene, so we’re pumping up this popular event to celebrate everything there is to love about Mt Maunganui’s natural beachfront, island and mountain landscape at The Generation Homes Mount Swim.

Why not make the most of this beautiful region over the Easter weekend and bring along your family or a bunch of mates! Beaches, shopping, a vibrant dining scene and countless outdoor activities like climbing up the Mount await in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.
